Abstract:To finish the bachelors program at the University of Twente an internship at Intelligent Lectern Systems (ILS) is fulfilled. ILS is specialized in the design of high end interactive lecterns. To secure their future market, they wanted to develop a new lectern which could be used without being an invasive statue on the podium. A thorough market and user analysis is done to begin with. These analyses are used to determine what ILS ac- tually needed, and what the user wanted. It appeared that ILS had a series of lecterns which were quite distinct from the competitors. It also appeared that ILS needs to innovate all the time to keep themselves distinctive from the competition, and that the idea of a lectern which can be used everywhere on the podium will be a very good product for future presenters. From the analyses are a list of functions derived from which a set of ideas are generated. The key functionali- ties are: The presenter can view his current and upcoming slide without looking behind, he can draw on his slides and he can operate the presentation anywhere on the podium. These are unique selling points ILS either currently has, or want to create with the new lectern. The ideas are sorted within functions they fulfill. When the lectern can fulfill these functions, it is likely it has all the capabilities to handle all the functions derived from the analyses. The sorted idea’s are put in a morphological table. With help of this table four concepts are designed. The four concepts exist of a regular clicker with some advanced functions, two concepts with an interactive screen, one designed as a tablet pc, and one as a screen around the arm, and the last concept is a motion cap- tion device. These concepts are tested with paper models and compared to each other with help of a program of requirements. The motion capture device is chosen as the final product. A way to start the whole presentation is added with help of a wireless lectern. A screen is placed in front of the presenter to provide visual feedback about what he is doing. A new motion caption device, The Leap Motion, is used capture the gestures of the presenter. This device is hung around the neck of the presenter. This way he has always the same imaginary box in front of him where he can make gestures. These gestures will be translated to actual actions by The Leap. So the final product is a device which captures gestures made by the presenter and translate these gestures into operations for the presentation. The advantage for a user to use this product over trying to make something himself is the point that the user gets a complete and integrated working product. He does not have to put any effort in trying to make a gesture unit work as ILS does this. The user buys a finished product which works together with sho-Q. ILS increases the value of the independent components by making them work together.
